the payback period

Question 1

Calculate the payback period for a project that requires investment of $5,400 and will provide the cashflows of $1,200, $400, $700, $3,000 and $500 in years 1 thru 5 respectively.

Question 2

A project has the following cash flow. What is the project’s NPV?

Question 3

IRR has the following drawbacks. Check all that apply. No credit if you miss or wrongly check any option.

o IRR may lead you to a wrong decision if you are deciding between mutually exclusive projects.

o For a project with conventional cashflows you may decide to take a project based on IRR

when NPV would have led you to reject the project.

o IRR assumes that intermediate cashflows from a project are invested at IRR

o There may be several IRRs if the cashflows are unconventional

o You may get a negative IRR
